Today is Veterans Day, and we want to extend our appreciation and gratitude to our men and women who have served and are serving our country.

Especially as we approach the holidays, let us keep in the forefront of our minds that many of our service men and women may not be able to be with their families this holiday season.

Help when you can, always show appreciation to our veterans and enlisted men and women and don't ever take for granted the freedom we enjoy and the price that has been paid for it.
